by Chris Cwik | CBSSports.com

Cubs infielder Arismendy Alcantara picked up four hits Thursday against the Reds.

After striking out in his first at-bat, and hitting a sac fly his second time up, Alcantara quickly turned things around. He doubled in his third plate appearance, singled his fourth time up and clubbed a triple his fifth time at the plate. He would go on to add another single his final time up. Alcantara finished 4 for 5, with two runs scored and three RBI. The strong performance likely played a role in the Cubs keeping Alcantara on the active roster following the game.

Rockies first baseman Justin Morneau will take part in the Home Run Derby.

Yoenis Cespedes won last season despite not being on the All-Star team.

Morneau won the Derby back in 2008. He's hitting .313/.346/.509 over 320 at-bats. He's hit 13 home runs.
